Market Overview

The Germany anti-caking market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period 2020 - 2025.

  • The market is majorly driven by the demand for the anti-caking agents in various industries such as food and beverage, cosmetics and personal care industries, pharmaceuticals, and others. The food and beverage sector dominates the market share among other industries in its application segment. In the food and beverage sector, it is used in bakery, dairy products, soups & sauces, and seasoning & condiments, and beverage industries, owing to its functional properties such as moisture absorption functionality. It also maintains the free-flow, texture, and organoleptic properties of the product, along with enhancing the shelf-life of the product. Thus, the high versatility of anti-caking agents is anticipated to further strengthen its demand over the forecast period.
  • However, only specific amounts of anti-caking agents, which are classification as “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS), designated by the US Food and Drug Administration, are permitted in food & beverage applications, therefore limiting its consumption in the aforementioned application. Also, several health hazards and side-effects associated with anti-caking agents are anticipated to negatively impact the growth of the market.

Key Market Trends

Acquisitive Demand for Calcium Compound in Various Industries

Some of the calcium compounds mostly used as an anti-caking agent, that are recognized as GRAS include calcium ferrocyanide, calcium phosphate (i.e. bone phosphate), calcium silicate, and calcium aluminosilicate. The most common food item which uses these compounds in its manufacturing includes table salt and fructose-sweetened powdered soft drinks. Also, calcium compounds are used as anti-caking agents such as Calcium Stearate NF, in tablet and capsule lubrication, due to its good anti-adherent and lubricant properties.

Rising Demand for Anti-Caking as Animal Feed

As the livestock industry registered a low growth rate, there is an increasing need for animal feed. The rising need for a high-quality feed and an increase in the number of feed additives, especially in the compound feed industry, are the major growth drivers of the market. This is expected to drive the demand for feed additives, particularly feed anti-caking agents. Moreover, silicates are widely used as an anti-caking agent, as silicates can absorb, both, water and oil. Sodium and calcium products, such as sodium ferrocyanide and tricalcium phosphate are witnessing high demand, as they reduce individual adhesion of feed.
